What is so great about this anime/manga. Why should I watch it, what are the best parts....
I'm used to watching things like Re:Zero, Guilty Crown, Angel Beats, and Devil's a Part-Timer...
Why do ya'll like this anime?
Well one of the best things about the series is it's massive world building. Also there's a lot of mysteries to unravel so you always to have to pay attention to small details ;) Something insignificant early on could play a huge deal 100+ episodes later
The characters are easy to find something in common with, even though they have insane powers they seem so real it's easy to feel connected to them. The story is so gripping and it's an emotional roller coaster, so you have to be dedicated to watching it. Unless you're me, I watched episode 1 thinking, "I used to watch this when I was little, I'll watch episode 1 to see what I remember." 10 months later I was caught up and watching Dressrosa.
It has absolutely nothing in common with Re:Zero (which I completely despise, story is weak) or Guilty Crown or Angel Beats. It does have a heavy comedic side like Devil's a Part Timer, and does get very serious when necessary. Oda keeps coming up with great story for great characters. The story itself has that "We're family" kind of vibe. It's an adventure to watch/read it.
Basically pirate naruto will very less fillers
Why you should watch it?
First, the theme of the stroy is great: "Freedom". Luffy wanted to become a pirate because he wants to be free. He didn't get bullied or spoiled when he was little. He wants to become the Pirate King to be the freeiest (or most free) man in the world. He doesn't want the other's approval and he's doesn't want to be a hero. That what make One Piece greater than Naruto (Wanting approval) and Bleach (Wanting to protect his special ones).
Second, it's the characters. Each one of the crew and the villain has a good backstories. They all get character devlopment compared to Bleach & Naruto who make some character devloppe more than others.
Third, the story. They get involved with dangerous pirate. Sometimes they fight oppenent who they can't win against. And about the story progression. Each arc is litteraly better than the previous one (there's an exception, in halfway of the show there's a great arc who's better than some upcoming arcs). And there's always events off-screen. It's not a one dimension story.
Forth, the One Piece and Pirate King condidates. One Piece is a physcial thing. Nothing like friendship or other shit. It's a real treasure (probably not gold). And it's not like Luffy is the only one wanting the One Piece. Each pirate wants it. It's something like Game of Thrones. A lot of parties aiming for one thing.
Fifth, the story again. I want to state that the story is always getting better and compared to other long running shounen like Naruto & Bleach. One Piece ending seems like some out-of-this-world. Because I believe the actual arc and the upcoming one are better than Naruto's & Bleach's last arc.
Sixth, mysteries. There's a lot of mysteries all along the story. The Devil Fruits source and possibilites. The 3 old weapons that are considered mass destruction weapon. The One Piece itself is a mystery and so is the island it's situated on. And there's the Void Century, a century removed from all the History books so people wouldn't know what happened.
This anime isn't like Dbz or Naruto it's about love brotherhood sometimes where you might cry sometimes where you have your last hope this anime is none like any other
This is about friendship and adventure. This would chill you to watch even more. For me, one piece is the best.
